Genetics in Animals

  • Identify traits in animal breeding that are desirable based on breed and that are heritable
essential question1
Essential Question
  • How can genetics affect animals and their use??
general concepts
General Concepts
  • Certain traits are heritable
    • Discuss
      • Is Behavior?
      • Is Intelligence?
      • Is color markings?
      • Is feed efficiency?
  • Hybrid vigor
    • By mixing breeds within a species, “genetic health” is stronger “Mutts live longer)
  • Purebred
    • “guaranteed results”
  • What kind of traits would you want in YOUR dog? If you had:
    • Children
    • Small apartment
    • Sheep herd

  • Sire Summaries
    • In cattle
    • Compares information on 1 bull, to his generation
    • Information is gathered by the productivity of his offspring
    • Helps famers choose which bull’s semen will help increase their herd’s health, and therefore his profit, when bred to his cows
    • More offspring a bull has (through natural mating or AI) the more Accurate his information and therefore the better guarantee that THOSE desired traits will be passed down
sire summary in cow calf op s
Sire Summary in Cow/Calf Op.s

Table 1Example of sire summary data from the 1984 Angus sire summary

University of Missouri: Extension

  • EPD: Expected Progeny Difference: express the genetic transmitting ability of a sire. The EPD is reported as a plus or minus value in the unit in which the trait is measured.
  • EPDs are calculated from a sire's progeny data. All bulls listed in the sire summary can be directly compared using EPD values. EPDs are an estimate of how a bull's progeny would be expected to perform compared to any other bull listed in the same summary.
  • ACC: Accuracy is a measure of how much the EPD value might change as additional progeny data become available. Sires with more calves in several different herds will have higher accuracy figures
  • Select bulls to use based upon their EPD values and use the accuracy figure to determine how much to use a bull.
  • Maternal Breeding Value (MBV) describes how daughters of a bull are expected to produce compared to other cows in a herd. Once a bull's own daughters come into production, the MBV is calculated using the records of his own daughters in addition to those of his sire and paternal and maternal grandsires.
  • Estimates of MBVs come from pedigree analysis, not sire evaluation
  • Number of Daughters.
  • Why would this information be needed or relevant?
why perform strict analysis
Why perform strict analysis?
  • Both commercial and seedstock producers should find sire summaries useful. A producer using AI can obtain semen from bulls that are superior in the traits of interest.
  • Summaries also can be used to identify herds that excel in genetic merit and vice versa. A breeder who has several superior bulls listed in the report is a more reliable source of bulls than either the breeder who has no bulls listed or the breeder who has poorer than average bulls listed in the summary.

once finished epd worksheet
Once Finished EPD worksheet
  • Summary Paper
    • 1 paragraph double spaced
      • Define the purpose of a Sire Summary. Who benefits from the sire summaries? What do sire summaries mean for producers? What information is provided on a sire summary?
  • Define terms normally used when explaining and discussing genetics
essential question2
Essential Question
  • Why is using appropriate terminology important in Veterinary Science?
co dominance
Co Dominance
  • A condition in which both alleles of a gene pair in a heterozygote are fully expressed with neither one being dominant or recessive to the other
  • Example: Roan coloring in cattle
roan coloring in cattle
Roan Coloring in Cattle
  • R is Red W is white
  • F1 Generation
    • All Roan
  • F2 Generation
    • 25% Red
    • 50% Roan
    • 25% White
    • 1:2:1 Ratio
sex limited genes
Sex Limited Genes
  • Gene that exerts its effects primarily in one sex because of activation by androgens or estrogens
  • Both sexes may have the gene
  • Example hen/rooster feathering
sex determination
Sex Determination
  • Mammals
    • Determined at moment of fertilization
    • Female has regular chromosomes plus an XX
    • Male has only 1 sex chromosome Y
  • Birds
    • Females determine the sex of the offspring
sex influenced genes
Sex Influenced Genes
  • Trait expressed to different extents depending on the sex of the individual.
  • Normally phenotypically recognized
  • Examples
    • Male pattern baldness in humans (comes from your mother)
    • Horns in sheep
    • Spotting in cattle
sex linked characteristics
Sex Linked Characteristics
  • Genes carried on the sex chromosome
  • Example barred feather coloring in chickens

Genetics Activities
  • Chromosomes and Genes
    • Simulation Activity
  • Dihybrid Guinea Pigs
  • Design a Species
  • Hardy-Weinburg?
genetics in animals
Genetics in Animals
  • Using the terms learned today.
  • Find examples other than those used in the presentation to help define 1 vocabulary word from today
  • Vocab
    • Sex Linked - Codominance
    • Sex influenced - Sex limited
  • Discuss common gene behavior
essential question3
Essential Question
  • What types of gene behavior might appear as a phenotypic result
  • Tendency for certain traits to appear in groups in the offspring
  • Genes closer together on the chromosome are more likely to stay together
  • During meiosis chromosomes line up closely
  • Sometimes the genes jump and cross over forming new chromosomes with different combinations of genes
  • The farther apart two genes are on a chromosome the more likely they are to make a new combination
  • New trait appears that did not exist in parents
  • Some are harmful some are beneficial
  • Radiation will cause genes to mutate
  • Example: Polled Herefords
    • Cross between to horned resulted in polled
    • Polled is dominant – one parent must be polled
mutation activity
Mutation Activity
  • Research a mutation in animals. (Your animal will be assigned)
  • Write a paragraph (10 sentences) summary describing the condition, what causes the condition, and if the condition benefits or harms the animal. Include a photo. Write up + photo = NO MORE THAN 1 PAGE in length
  • Provide sources in APA format have at least 2
  • This will be presented, and collected for grading. COMPLETE SENTENCES please
